We were in the Sea of Cortez, and temperatures were in the high 90s. I needed a dish that wouldn’t go bad in the heat and that I could make ahead of time, preferably without heating up our boat. Three Bean Salad is perfect for times like this.
After anchoring, we enjoyed a glass of wine while dinner was in the oven. I had done the prep work the day before—Baked Tuscan Chicken is a wonderful make-ahead meal for guests, needing virtually no last-minute attention.
